It's a day trip from Cape Town and we did it yesterday.
It is an impressive sight. The idea that there is nothing but ocean from this point south to Antarctica is pretty amazing.
It took us about an hour and a half to drive down there.
And then we walked about fifteen minutes more to the tip where the new lighthouse is. The walk down was a breeze and you pass these amazing cliffs. The walk back up was a bit of an effort, but well worth it.
The wind was blowing hard at Cape Point yesterday as everyone's hair shows.
We had a great time and I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Cape Town.
